ok... these weeks are just flying by. i'm having a hard time keeping up.
monday | 10.22.12 grocery shopping. then i got some work done at my new beautiful desk. kobe found his new spot. at 3:10 we had max's parent teacher conference. he's doing good. he works at his own little pace (which we need to work on) and he only got mad at the teacher once. luckily he just put his head down on his desk for a little while. madi had a student council thing after school, she got done at about the time we had to be at the elementary school, so she went home with ally. and then shortly after, they both came over to our house and hung out. i ordered rosatti's because i didn't want our guest to have to eat chicken and asparagus. plus i was craving some more of their onion rings. that night i ordered the girls' costumes online. there's a warehouse here that i can pick them up from so i didn't have to pay shipping. score. we took ally home at 8:00.
tuesday | 10.23.12 no school today because of parent teacher conferences. kenzie and madi had theirs at 7:30 and 7:55 this morning so we could get them out of the way. (we were even done early) around 10:30 we drove out to the costume place, only to find out the costumes weren't there yet and that they would call us when they come in. (i just assumed they had them all in the warehouse.) we picked up mcdonalds for madi and max and came home. me and kenzie had bagels from the bucket we bought this morning. so glad the pumpkin shmear is back in. later that afternoon, everyone but kenzie made caramel apples. we used the little caramel bits (the ones that look like chickpeas) this year. melted some chocolate bark and squeezed in onto the apples using a ziplock bag. and a couple of them, we added some chopped up peanuts to. i couldn't wait for dessert tonight. we all enjoyed one, except darric. he just didn't want one.
wednesday | 10.24.12 finished up the tags for this year's christmas planners. hopefully they match the papers that we are using. finished a couple posts and published them. i feel like i got quite a bit done, but now it doesn't really seem that way. madi had her gymnastics tonight. then kenzie had her volleyball. i spray painted the handle on max's axe. it's plastic, so i used primer, but the paint is still scratching off. hopefully it will last until next week.
thursday | 10.25.12 after school, i took madi and ellie to her house. then ellie's brother was taking them out to the ellis island super 8 motel for the candlelighter's halloween bash. madi took kenzie's old bee costume to wear. the rest of us went over to michaels, they didn't have what we needed. went next door to petsmart and grabbed a bag of dog food. went to cash in three of our krispy kreme halloween coupons, because we had to wait awhile, the girl gave us three extras. :) we ran to hancock and found the fur we needed for mixter's beard. and then we drove through mcdonalds for drinks. they are finally opened back up!! (a fire on september 13 has had it closed for repairs) i cut mixter's beard out. there was so much fur all over the place. he wanted to see how the whole get-up looked, so he tried everything on. darric was in kingman and didn't get home until about 9:00. madi got home a little while after that. she had a fun evening.
friday | 10.26.12 no school today. nevada day observed. i got us a bucket of bagels. we all went to albertsons for a couple things. then over to trader joe's to get pumpkins. everyone got a mini pumpkin too. jodie came over. we went and picked up the girls' costumes. then later, we ended up going to mcdonalds and five guys to pick up lunches.
saturday | 10.27.12 madi and i picked up bread bowls from great harvest, went to micheals and bought pumpkin carving tools0 ran into target to see if they had candy eyes. went to ups store to mail off the halloween package we put together for brodey. got drinks from circle k. made spinach dip and we went to jen and dave's house for the pumpkin carving party.
sunday | 10.28.12 not sure what we did today.
as told by max... "i was getting my lunch box out of the basket and i saw i had a booger on my hand, but it wasn't mine, so i flicked it off."
as asked by max... "is your middle toe a bad word?"
